Neil Michael Hagerty leads The Howling Hex back out into the sunshine with a new full length, their first since The Best of the Howling Hex back in 2013. This direction, explored in a pair of limited-edition singles released over the past two years, reaches a populist zenith on the new album, Denver, in which an entire community and geographic region are tapped for their  energy, the celebratory pulses of which feed the new music of Neil Michael Hagerty and The Howling Hex!

The deeply principled, forward-facing manner of The Howling Hex is based in the now-ancient ways of rock and roll alchemy- the modding-up of ethnic idioms from regional traditional American sounds and the refitting of these rhythms  with expressions of new youth, reckless within the contemporary lifestyle! Coupled with the beats, Neil's howling guitar sounds elevate the
music of Denver to an ecstatic communal expression, the likes of which will no doubt massage pleasure centers in the make-up of modern popular music listeners.

The music, when combined with the high-energy reflections of the city life and mountain scene that emanates from Denver, gives The Howling Hex their most powerful, accessible iteration, driven by the rhythm and accelerated by the gnarl of Neil's classic guitar playing. Travel to Denver with The Howling Hex on April 15th!
